One of our curated road trip tour guides are for those planning a road trip, whether an experienced motorhomer, or new to campervanning - and looking to be in the driver’s seat yet leave no stone unturned to make the most of your adventure. The fascinating story of the Mayflower voyage, and the stories behind the Pilgrims, can be discovered with this trail around the important places and the significant people who are part of the narrative. As the ship that transported English Separatist passengers – who became known as the Pilgrims – the Mayflower is one of the most important ships in history. Sailing across the Atlantic over 400 years ago, the passengers were heading towards a 'new promised land' where they would establish the Plymouth Colony in 1620. The Pilgrims' story is now a central theme in the history, and culture of the United States and the celebration of Thanksgiving began here in October 1621 after their first harvest. The rest, they say, is history but one with a part that continues with an estimated 10 million living Americans, and up to 35 million people (worldwide), who descended from the Pilgrims.
